"I am indebted to West Ham" - A message from Pedro Obiang

Pedro Obiang


Midfielder Pedro Obiang left West Ham United on Wednesday to join Italian side Sassuolo, after four years and 116 appearances in the claret and blue. Following his departure, he sent the following message to Joint-Chairman David Sullivan and Hammers fans…

Dear Mr Sullivan,
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your help during my stay at West Ham United. I hope my attitude and behaviour has been as you expected and hoped for, I have always tried to be loyal and show respect toward you and the club. 

Pedro Obiang
I am indebted to you for bringing me to the club and helping me to achieve a dream of mine – playing in the Premier League, a dream which I have now fulfilled with West Ham.
I would have dearly liked to have achieved more in my time at the club, but maybe in the future, if the doors remain open to me, I can return.
Finally, I have to say some words for the supporters.
I have some great memories with you all. The first one that comes to my head is the very first time I heard my song.
Second is when I was out with injury, because I received so many good words from the fans.
Third, the unforgettable last game we played at our old home, Upton Park, against Manchester United.

And fourth, the many friends I made in and around the club. And there many more great memories.

I wish you all the very best – and maybe one day I will come to the stadium to feel again the passion I always felt when I was there.
Thank you. 
Come on you Irons!
Pedro Obiang
